Giraffe And The Honeybee, A New Lesson Learned


Giraffe Tongue out

The giraffe girl in the zoo was sleeping. She had a heavy lunch. Suddenly a roaring noise woke her up. She opened one of her eyelids to see who’s making the strange sound. She saw a little bee, who was making rounds to collect honey from the flowers.

“Hey, silly bee, what are you doing? Can’t you see I am sleeping here? Go and sleep like me, take some rest, Ms.Honeybee. Look at me, I don’t worry about food or anything,” the giraffe said.

“You are fortunate to say that Ms. Giraffe. Your life is luxurious in this zoo. You have plenty of stuff to eat, and zoo workers are looking after you like a VIP. But look at me, I have to work round the clock to collect honey from all these flowers. I am not alone, my other bee friends are roaming around to collect honey. Can you see the honeycomb hanging from that big tree? That is where I live. We are a big community on the top of that tree. If we fail to do our duty in time, our community will be dead.” the bee replied. 

It was new learning for the Giraffe girl. Not everybody is as fortunate as she is. “I am enjoying all the comfort here in the zoo while other animals are working hard for their survival,” she realized. She took a vow that day that she will not advise anybody without knowing their background.
